    Description

    The Mother I Never Knew is a poignant story - a quest of two sons for their mothers. It is written by Sudha Murty. 

    Summary of the Book

    Venkatesh is a bank manager. He bumps into his look-alike one day and decides to probe further to see if there is any sort of connection between them. That is how he discovers his father’s untold past, which includes a deserted wife and a child. Venkatesh decides to help his stepmother who is impoverished. But how will he also repay his father’s debt? Mukesh discovers that he was adopted, soon after his father’s demise. He decides to search for his biological mother. But when his quest becomes more intense by the day, he is confused as to who he should be more loyal to – his biological mother or the mother who raised and gave him a decent life.

    An author with a lot of Indianness

    I am really glad that the spirit of Indianness has not died in our Indian writers.In an age where all authors are behind A-rated content in all their creative works, this masterpiece is a refreshing take on the lives of two men.

I really enjoyed reading it and look forward to more such realistic creative ideas that can touch every Indian heart out here and ...

    Disappointing

    Im a fan of Sudhajis writing but am truly disappointed by this book . Normally the pace is easy going like Ruskin Bond and very real . In one word , this is FILMY . Too much like bollywood . Too much emotional atyachar . Dont buy it if you can borrow it for curiositys sake and if like you you happen to be a fan .
